Washington Examiner: Smut list: Bezos’ Amazon hit for selling ‘child-like’ sex dolls, porn

Jeff Bezos’ Amazon is on a new smut list of companies that cash in on sexual exploitation.

The nation’s largest online retailer is featured in the just-released 2018 Dirty Dozen Listfrom the National Center on Sexual Exploitation.

The Center said Amazon “facilitates the sale of materials that sexualize children and normalize the dehumanization and sexual commodification of women. Such products include eroticized child nudity photography books, sex dolls (many with childlike features,) and books with ‘how to’ instructions for sex trafficking.”

Each year, the Center releases the list to put heat on firms that it believes facilitates in sexual exploitation. This year, amid the #MeToo movement, the group again expects to get results.

In releasing the list, Haley Halverson, vice president the Center, said, “If the Me Too movement has revealed anything, its that sexual exploitation runs deep in our society—and the Dirty Dozen List gives individuals a voice, and a chance to take action and hold mega-corporations and public influencers responsible for promoting rape myths, and sexual entitlement, that fuel sexual harassment and violence.”
